Volunteers increase the quality and breadth of Library services for everyone in the community. Thank you for considering contributing your time and skills.
Due to the COVID-19 virus impacts to the library, all of our volunteering opportunities are virtual/online only.
To get signed up for one of our virtual volunteer trainings and begin the process of volunteering, please email the program you’d like to volunteer with. Please note that all volunteers will be required to sign an application and waiver, and volunteers 18 years and older will be subject to a background check.
Teens: If you are 16 years and older, you may volunteer virtually under the OG Reader Tutoring with Youth Services (contact info above).
PLEASE NOTE: The Library volunteer program cannot be used to fulfill court-ordered community service hours. For more information about completing court-ordered community service hours in Santa Barbara County, please call 805-882-3649 or go to the Santa Barbara County Department of Probation website, and select "Community Service" from the horizontal menu.
